8:47 am
bright day there. and we will be finding a bright day. because we just have little band of clouds, just running on by, but no rain associated with it, looks lovely out in reading, 59 degrees, the winds are basically non-existent over the entire area. these are the clouds that we're seeing on the cameras right now, then you can see them, right on storm scan3. and they keep moving on. and we have more sunshine following those, fortunately. sixty-four the temperature in philadelphia right now. fifty-eight in trenton, 59 degrees wilmington, 55 in the poconos. lovely start to the day. calm winds and we're not a calm wind, it is a 2-mile per hour winds. that's it. so, that adds to the beauty and the joy of being outside. not having to run after your plates or anything else today, because everything is staying put. temperatures in the middle 80s, high pressure in here, perfect. tomorrow we get into the way up into the 70s, and it might hid 08 degrees tomorrow, slightly cooler. back door front coming through. then do we have low pressure system coming offer into the
8:48 am
ocean, and maybe bringing shower here, later on tuesday, maybe again on wednesday. the placement that far will be key to it. unlike yesterday it, seems to want to take it farther out to sea there is little front might want to trying their shower or two. let's see what we have going on here, nothing so much today. notice, just one, two clouds through the afternoon, more as we go through overnight, maybe first thing tomorrow. and then, they clear out, this is the front, that could be bringing some showers, on tuesday, at this point, they look like they're light showers. if you have hd tv over here, that is the area of low pressure, does it stay off the coast? we would like to think that it does. because we already saw coastal storm last week. that brought a lot of rain and winds on thursday. now, this computer model says tuesday evening, do we see few showers? do we see by wednesday, maybe just a little bit of shower activity, again it, depends on whether we find anything developing out along the coastal areas. we may not.
8:49 am
we may be staying mostly dry, most of that time, but i just want to call your attention to that in case you're doing that absolutely cannot have a drop of rain guaranteed. again that would be the mid week time period, if we were to see any of these showers. 84 degrees in philadelphia, today. it is cents dry today. seventy-eight at the shore. poconos, 78 degrees. cannot miss if you have outdoor plans scheduled for today, maybe scheduled them a year ago, you were brilliant. you new exactly what you were doing. fall foliage, it knows what it is doing, too, and it says, no too early for us to change, so, no change in the foliage right now. to the north, little bit more. but not a lot. temperatures have not gotten cool enough at night to really trigger some of those changes. and they're not cool today either. but they're great. 84 degrees, sunshine, low humidity, light winds, tonight, 62 degrees, few clouds eventually come into the picture, and then as we look through the next couple of days, almost 08 degrees monday few more clouds, tuesday, 77, partly sunny, maybe that shower, wednesday, do we see another shower?
8:50 am
there is a chance. temperatures, 72 degrees. thursday, should be dry, at 72 degrees, but we will continue to monitor that. friday, 73, and then, saturday we might be seeing a rain shower, but all of that, subject to change, except the temperatures which generally are nice. you know, you watch our forecast on tv. well, of course, now, you can hear them on the go, beginning tomorrow morning, you can listen to katie's forecast on "kyw news radio". eyewitness weather team on "kyw news radio", why don't you check in two, three, even four times a day. todd? >> carol, thank you. >> time now to check the road. we go out to ann evans once more at the cbs-3 traffic sentiment hi, ann. >> hey, today, look at the crowded logan circle there we have. this is for the parkway run, the ben franklin parkway, actually, inner lanes closed between logan circle and the art museum circle as you can see now, the parkway run is well underway, walkers and runners, it seems. and they seem to be having great old time here, all for
